I feel really foggy today. I've been exercising pretty heavily the past 5 days, but I hate to break my momentum, especially when this is the week(end) that hormones trigger much more eating. Today I am sore and tired and truly rolled out of bed... but dragged myself to the park for a 4-mile walk. Thank goodness for the girlfriend who kept me accountable and made me meet her! The walk went by like a breeze -- albeit a panting breeze -- because of our chatting.
I'm worried about weighing in tomorrow. I really thought I would have lost last week, but I didn't. Plus, I'm likely carrying extra water weight this week and I will be really disappointed if the scale doesn't budge! I am feeling slimmer (although my hips aren't totally fitting my old clothes yet), but I need a boost of encouragement along with that to feel like I'm on the right track.
I should probably really focus on my eating, too. Although my calorie differential has been negative, I have noticed my graphs creeping up. I may make my calorie limit each day, but I'm just getting in under the line -- which is not optimal for change. We'll see how this week goes. I'm not out of the hormone woods yet!
